75 Vintage clothing stores around London

Correction: Vintage has always been in London

I had always known that vintage clothing's heart was in the UK, especially London. After receiving a comment from itsmonkeyboy on one of my other articles, Best places to buy vintage clothing online, I decided to take up a challenge to find 100 physical vintage clothing stores in and around London. Boy, I found way more than I intended to and because of the monumental task, I stopped at 75 after a tiring round of linking content.

Despite the work, after looking at these websites and reading reviews of these stores, it makes me want to venture over to London and really experience vintage clothing.

Great idea for a hub! Hopefully I will be able to travel to London again at some point. If I do, I'll bring this with me.
